What to expect


- Non-vintage Brut champagne that presents like an older vintage champagne

- New generation of winemaker coming through, father to son.

- Pair with firm cheese like aged parmesan or Comte.

This represents 70% chardonnay coming from Avize and 30% pinot noir coming from vineyards around epernay. This is only made in the best years and represents the best fruit too. 

Expect richer notes of biscuit, pear and ripe apple fruit leading to a rather lush and plush palate. That's what you want when you spend up a bit. This can quite happily pair with a range of dishes that include roasted or baked meats, earthy potatoes or can comfortably sit as a premium aperitif, kicking off the dinner conversation nicely.

André uses mainly stainless steel for fermentation and slightly longer lees ageing for this wine (3-4 years) give provide a finer bubble. 

 

Wine Maker: André Bergere with son Adrien coming up the ranks.

About the house

About the house


The Bergère family have been growing grapes and crafting champagne for 3 generations, mostly for the large Champagne Houses. Increasingly their best grapes have been kept for their own label. André Bergère currently runs the house with his wife Brigitte and their two children Annaëlle and Adrien who are becoming increasingly involved. The family owns vines in the villages of Fèrebrianges, Etoges and Congy. The grapes for their Grand Cru champagnes come from the famous Grand Cru village of Avize where famous names such as Moët & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot and Roederer source their Grand Cru Chardonnay. These champagnes are extremely easy to enjoy with or without food. They are of the highest quality, especially the Grand Cru.
